Went to the Waterfront for an early supper before catching the train- the Early Bird offer looked enticing but there was time only to eat one course. I chose the 'special' which was fried halibut , sweet potato mash and leek puree. What can I say ? The two fillet fish was ultra fresh , and cooked perfectly à point.. Perhaps a smidgeon more leek puree .... Service was prompt and attentive.

What a fabulous restaurant, slightly hidden away behind the main road in-between the rail station and the pier. You enter the restaurant from a set of stairs as it is located on the first floor. Very lovely setting or a romantic evening meal. It was spotlessly clean and the staff very welcoming and attentive. We had great meals here associated with our groupon voucher; the portions for the mains were huge! The menu was lovely and offered really good value for money. I would definitely recommend this place.

Showcases the abundance of great seafood we have in Scotland.
Excellent service from attentive and well presented staff.
